"Doppel" means double and this beer is double in every way. Bayern Doppelbock became an instant legend when Bayern introduced it in Missoula in December of 1987. Unlike its top-fermenting counterparts, this hearty German dark lager does not have the rough bite of a porter or a stout. Bayern Doppelbock is dark, smooth and has plenty of hops (Saaz & Hallertauer Perle) and malt. It has a starting gravity of 18 degrees Plato. Bayern Doppelbock is available in bottles and on draft from November through February, just in time for the holidays and the coldest months. Please enjoy this festive beer in moderation and leave your car at home if you are planning to celebrate with Doppelbock. Draft Magazine rated Bayern Doppelbock 98 (out of 100): the highest rating for any beer in that category!

Draft. Pours a dark brown. Tan head with low head retention and low lacing. Aroma of chocolate, ash and slight spice character. Taste of roasted malts, pear brandy with some bitterness in the middle and a semi-sweet finish. The finish is also a bit hot from the noticeable alcohol. A nice doppelbock.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Poured a deep black-brown body with amber tones in the light. Small ghost of a head. Nose of chocolate, roasted malts. Sweet, milky flavor with a nice robust but slightly thin finish.

IndianaRed (3791) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Bottle poures a deep dark redish brown witha dissapointing thin fizzy head that quickly dissipates. Light roasted carmel and chocolate malt aroma. Slightly spicy light roasted flavor. Woody, a bit sweet and a little cinnamon. Thin and quite soft carbonation. Nice tasting but unsatifying somehow.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2008 I really like this dark, seasonal brew from Missoula. Not much head...rich taste. High alcohol level (alc. content 7.8 - 8.4% vol). Only available from November thru February. Calories abt. 300, (based on Sam Adams Double Bock).

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle via beer swap at ABA Annual meeting in Portland, Oregon. Pours a clear, golden brown brew with a thin beige head that slowly dissolves to a fine film, good lacing and white ring. Aroma of smoked apple and plum wood, some roasted nuts, sweet caramel malt, with a touch of flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated, semi-sweet with flavors of light milk chocolate, toffee, some apple/pear character and a touch of smokey brown sugar. Finish is sweet, then slightly dry with a faint maple syrup flavor aftertaste. Nice touch for a doppelbock.

12oz btl thanks to kyzr. A dark brown pour with little to no head. An aroma of malt sweetness and a hint of abv. A flavor of sweet maltiness followed by raisins and just enough bitter to keep it interesting. The abv comes through with just a tad of warmth. Light carbonation and good mouthfeel push this beer on up. Overall a beer that I really enjoyed and wish I could get here. thanks Mitch

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - MAY 15, 2007
Bottle thanks to Kyzr poured a dark brown color with almost no head. Aroma was malty with sweet caramel and some chocolate. Flavor had a clean lager yeast with mild hop bitterness and more of a rich sweet malt finish.

hayduke (4919) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 2, 2007
From Ashand, Oregon this poured dark ruby with a tiny brown head and little lacing. Nose of sweet malts. Thin body and nothing like it looks. Flavor is sweet and there are fruits in the finish. Not bad, not good. I am not very expert on the type so don’t know how to compare it on that basis, but I note below both Oakes and Ompher were not impressed.

12 oz. bottle via trade with kyzr - Pours a clear brown color with a thin light tan head that faded quickly. No lacing. Has a sweet malt aroma. Flavor is very sweet malt with light esters. Medium body. Fairly smooth palate. Not bad. Thanks Mitch.
